    Why training in Acquisitions and Supply Chain?

    Production facilities are constantly pursuing cost reductions and productivity gains. One of the factors contributing to these goals is the management of the supply chain and the way in which all work is involved together.

    Within this module, we meet the most important challenges of procurement specialists:

    How well do you know your market, suppliers and customers? And the strategy of the company?
    Do you have a negotiation strategy that includes the stage of preparation, understanding of business objectives, profit and loss?
    How do you make sure you’ve chosen the most appropriate provider?
    What are the benefits included in the negotiated cost?
